if there was a conspiracy, really. and nothing. spent you don't think it was anything simply dennis should be -- sinister beyond what we know? >> i'll tell you my, i'll tell you what struck me as really interesting about that tape was how it had been handled. was my job as a national archives, i wrote the library and looked into this. i had an interesting take that i run a project, and it turned out that the states had gone to this particular tape, from if i'm not mistaken june 20, 1972, the first time that haldeman and knicks are talking to each other in the white house, after watergate. they have talk to each other before but they were in florida but this is the first time next to a taping system. anyway, that tape went to camp david where it was worked on by the president, secretary rose mary woods, it also went to others. so there's number of people who could have erased it. not since richard nixon. and, frankly, my sense is that the person who might have done it is the one really deniable person in the nixon entourage. because it went to florida. what was it doing in florida? but there's no evidence

? >> first thing i would do is send dennis rodman over. [laughter] the truth is the first thing i would do is i would ask them why they are doing what they're doing. i really like to hear from him personally because we know of course what his surrogate are doing. i would like to know from him by their defeat -- if they -- you know in that region the three countries that have as many countries, iran, turkey and egypt are the cornerstone of that region. does that mean we want to be like any of them or anyone else want to be like thatcome up with have to account for the fact those three countries are the historic cornerstones are endpoints of that region. the first thing at the know is what is it they believe the future holds for the region and why are they apparently it seems to me on a path to try to dredge up old animosities among sunni and shia things that frankly in this time in world history should be able

's all give a dennis rodman a great round of applause. [applause] >> speaking of athletes i saw the president went golfing with tiger woods this week. he said this about the president he had come and i quote, an amazing touch. the last time tiger said that she lost millions in endorsements and a hot swedish wife. the president say -- people say the president and i have trouble laughing at ourselves. we can't laugh at ourselves. that would be racist. [applause] this might surprise you i'm actually looking forward to president obama's second term. it will be refreshing to hear him stop blaming all of the country's problems on the last four years. [applause] that's enough with the jokes. i want to switch to some more serious lines. i thought you might need a short break from the serious speeches. [applause] i want to talk to you today about something i believe is critical for the success not only of the republican party but also of the conservative movement. you know, after losing two presidential elections in a row, now is certainly time for some candid discussions. first radical
